Our Bread Facts!

You’ll NEVER find THESE in our breads:


Eating bread with active yeast is particularly dangerous b ecause yeast is alive and it consumes food and sugars and releases waste like carbon dioxide and alcohol. If a person consumes anything with yeast still activated, the yeast will begin breaking down sugar compounds found in the stomach and use it as it’s food. Yeast also grows in very warm environments, like your stomach, which can result in digestive tract issues as carbon dioxide and alcohol accumulate. As the yeast breaks down the food and sugars, the stomach will be filled with large amounts of carbon dioxide and alcohol. This is particularly dangerous because fermentation will occur inside your tender stomach, slowly breaking down the thin mucus lining that coats the inner walls of your stomach resulting in many different health issues like gout and others. This is why we do not ship bread to you unless it is 100% safe to eat, so rest assured that when you receive your loaves, they are ready to enjoy right away!!
